I am not the most traditional photographer, and I like to create an experience my clients love, and know what to expect when choosing me. Take some time to read over how I shoot, my approach, expectations & answering some questions you may have up front.
We both want to make sure you’re choosing the right photographer from the get go. The relationship and experience with your photographer strongly reflects how you show up and feel during your photos, making them look that much more magical when the connection is right!
You deserve a photographer who cares about your photos just as much as you do! I want us both to be on the same page, and dancing with joy when you decide to book!
I am not one to pose you into something that makes you uncomfortable. I’m more about motion, and what’s real. I love the unposed, messy, blurry photos that seem to be fleeting and just feel real. The in between moments is where the magic happens. I am of course here to lead you and guide you into a natural flow of posing, but we won’t be doing any strict posing or having someone direct us.
I am big on trusting the process. I love that you have a pinterest board and reels for me to see, but I would rather you trust my artistic vision and us make something that is uniquely yours. Of course you can show me your ideas and inspiration, but let’s try not to mimic or copy anything if we can help it. I am still an artist, and love to express myself making your photos one of a kind.
I am in it for the untraditional things. Don’t want a cake cutting, awesome! Don’t want to throw a garter? Even better. I love when my couples are unapologetically themselves. That is how it should be! You deserve to do whatever you want. I am heartbroken when I hear a bride only did something to please somebody else.. Or didn’t get to do what they really wanted because of what someone else thought.. It’s YOUR day, make it what you want it to be! The options are endless, and it’s time to start thinking outside the box when it comes to weddings. Let’s get weird, and embrace the differen’t!
Your photographs are what will remain over everything else at the end of the day. Not the decorations, the seating chart, or music choices. Having tangible memories to remember one of// if not the most important day in your life is priceless. Your photos only gain value in time when they move past generations.
Your photographer should not just be a check box on your list and if you’re just looking for a deal– then I’m probably not the photographer for you. And that is totally okay! You deserve someone who fits all your needs, and your budget. Photos last a lifetime, and I cherish the couples I work with who believe in the value of their memories.
When it comes to photographing and editing, each day is different and I shoot according to the vibe and feel of the day. I want to make sure the images are telling a story of how the day actually felt, while reflecting who my couples are. My editing style is reflective of what you see on my socials and site, however you may see changes to each session that are reflective of the day such as how the weather was, if I felt a moment should be told in a way that creates intentional blur, or a portrait with a tight crop to showcase hands being held or the way you two are looking at each other in a moment that felt right out of a movie still. I value quality over quantity, so we are creating the best story and images you’ll value forever.
I’m always just an email/text away for you. I love to help when it comes to planning questions, if you need a recommendation or just an opinion on a color. I’m here for ya, no matter what to the best I can be. You’re likely doing all of this for the first time and it’s a lot! I have shot dozens of weddings and know what to look for, helpful tips and tricks. I also send over a very helpful guide to look over and learn from. While I’m here for you, please also respect that I have my own family too so any text that are sent at a time away from working hours will be responded to at a time that I’m able to answer and be responsive.
I believe that everyone deserves to find their person, and that love is love. I welcome all love and am happy to provide my services to LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples. If you are someone who stands against the community, I advise you to select another photographer.
I'm based in Indianapolis, Indiana but I love to travel all over the globe to capture love.
You bet I do! Nothing excited me more than the opportunity to shoot a destination wedding or elopement. If you're thinking of taking your celebrations overseas, please get in touch so we can chat about the finer details.
A million times YESS!!! LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I'd love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I'm 100% here for it!
If you and your partner are thinking of skipping the fuss and running off to do a private ceremony with just the two of you or a handful of your nearest and dearest, I'd be absolutely love to discuss this with you!
You'll receive around 100 photos per hour, depending on how many hours we shoot and how jam-packed your wedding day is. I don't cap my images and prioritize quality over quantity.
Firstly, I'll send you a handful of sneak peek shots a couple of days after your wedding. 4 to 6 weeks later, you'll receive a link to your online gallery and slide slow to watch and relive your wedding day.
It will take roughly 4 to 6 weeks to receive your final wedding photos. I put a lot of love and care into perfecting each image, which is why it'll take me a little bit more time to deliver your final images. If you'd like your photos sooner, please ask me about the rush fee.
This is your wedding and if you are uncomfortable with your photos being shared on my social media platforms, I will respect that. Just let me know.
This has never happened and hopefully with NEVER happen, but if it does.. I have helpful friends and there are photographers all over who could help us out, or we will discuss options if something totally wack were to happen.
Yes, we can organize to split your payments into three installments. Just let me know if this would suit you.
Of course, I'd love for you to print your favourite photos! You can easily order photos prints through your online gallery.
Life is complicated and the unexpected is to be expected. The deposit is non refundable as this helps to protect my business due to turning away all other booking for your wedding date. I hope you understand that deposit is insurance for my business to stay afloat in the event of a cancellation.
Yes, I have some pals I'd love to recommend to you! If you would like a specific recommendations, just reach out and I'm sure I will have some suggestions I can send you.
